How awesome is that?! And, here's a picture of my take-home this week:
Beets, elephant garlic, green onions, eggplant, oranges, red la soda potatoes, yukon gold potatos, and salad greens. Mmmm. This is going to be a tasty week.

I have only previously seen the typical red radishes, and it amused me that I only had 1 of that color.
Also, we've been getting more citrus than we can eat, so I was very excited to pick up a hand juicer from the thrift store for only a few dollars.
Seriously, how awesome are these pieces of furntiture? They are very sturdy, durable, functional, and straight out of the 70's. Plus, they match these cool chairs we got off craigslist when we first moved here:
When I went to the used furniture stores with my mom last weekend, all of the kitchen hutches we saw were over $200. Most were around $500.
I feel awesome right now.
The thing about New Year's resolutions is they always focus on the negative, and what we want to change about ourselves. Screw that. I'm not going to start off the 2009 by telling myself I'm not good enough, instead I'm going to remind myself that I happen to be pretty awesome. So, I decided to set some goals for the upcoming year that celebrate my awesome-ness.
1. Apply to Graduate School If I would like to begin grad school in 2010, I have to apply by December 15th, 2009. This is even though I'm not 100% on what program I want to apply to, I am at least going to get the process started I've already taken the GRE's, and I may decide to take them again to bring up my math score. The next thing I need to do is take the GRE Psychology subject test, so I registered online and will be taking this April 4th.
2. More Fully Embrace Health at Every Size The past several months I've been reading a lot of Shapely Prose, which is a super awesome that is all about fat acceptance, body positivity and healthy living no matter what your size is. Now, I know I'm not the most overweight person out there; I'm not even in plus sized clothing. Neither am I the most slender, and I'm definitely an "apple" shape. This year, I'm not going to diet just for the sake of losing weight and fitting into someone else's standard of beauty. The first step I've taken towards this is to register for a yoga class through Tucson Parks & Rec that runs March-May. I'm really excited about this, as I've never taken a yoga class before (although I have some yoga and pilates DVD's, which I really enjoy).
I am so in love with these earings, and I feel like a total badass when I wear them.
